Why don't caucasian people have an epicanthus (epicanthic eye fold)?

Why don't caucasian people have an epicanthus (epicanthic eye fold)?

Heredity: We develop characteristics that reflect our genetic ancestry. Most caucasians lack a lid fold but not all. A good question would be what is the survival advantage of such a fold which occurs so commonly in asians. Some think it helps with harsh environments, but what do you think? ...Read more

How to cure a crossed eye, lazy eye, ect?

How to cure a crossed eye, lazy eye, ect?

Crossed eye: This condition is some type of strabismus, and in a young child should be evaluated urgently by an ophthalmologist--an eye surgeon/md. Sometimes glasses, and sometimes glasses with patching of the better eye may do the trick. Other times eye muscle surgery is needed. There are some types of strabismus that are harder to correct. If it is for you, seek out an adult strabismologist specialist. ...Read more

Someone became blind from cataract, would their eye color change?

Someone became blind from cataract, would their eye color change?

Might turn white: An advanced untreated cataract will eventually turn white in the pupillary space. If still untreated, some will dissolve and lose the white color but more often will rupture and set up a terrific inflammation inside the eye. In this era, cataract removal is so predictable and safe that advanced cataracts should be rare. ...Read more

Sudden cross eyed vision vision?

Sudden cross eyed vision vision?

Could be many things: If this happens, see a doctor immediately. It could be decompensation of a pre-existing muscle balance problem. It could also be a stoke that can cause this, but less likely and far more dangerous. Again to sort this out, please have an exam. ...Read more

2 african american parents. Moms grandfather was white with blue eyes. The baby turned out white with blue eyes statistically what odds was this?

Can you tell me in human beings, brown eyes are usually dominant over blue eyes. suppose a brown-eyed woman whose father had b?

Can you tell me in human beings, brown eyes are usually dominant over blue eyes. suppose a brown-eyed woman whose father had b?

Eye color: is genetically complex with a number of factors that determine the actual color appearance. However the brown gene is dominant and the blue gene is recessive. Since only one dominant gene is required for brown eyes, then brown eyed parents can produce blue or brown eyed children, while two blue eyed parents should produce only blue-eyed children. ...Read more

Brown eyes woman an blue eyed man would have offrspring with what eye color?

Brown eyes woman an blue eyed man would have offrspring with what eye color?

Brown or blue: Assuming the brown eye woman is heterozygous (has a dominant and a recessive gene) there would be 50-50 chance of a blue eyed baby and a 50-50 chance of a brown eyed baby. If the woman had only the dominant gene of brown eyes there would be a 100% chance of a brown eyed baby. ...Read more

Acrysof toric lens put in R eye 10/14. +5 -2.75 correction. Good vision, etc. Temporal crescent. Flicker in most light. None in dark. Prognosis?

Post op cataract: It appears from your question that the surgery was done October 14th (today is 10/17). There are a number of visual symptoms that appear in the first few days / weeks after cataract surgery that resolve spontaneously. The temporal crescent and flickering are very common and almost always resolve. One theory is that the implant becomes more secured within the capsular bag during this period of time ...Read more

Why men look at beautiful women with blinking eyes means from eye core?

Why men look at beautiful women with blinking eyes means from eye core?

Superstition: There is nothing magic in eyesight. The beauty of the human form is to be enjoyed. Try to look deeper for better-quality long-term relationships, and if you've got the good fortune to be a "beautiful person" yourself, be sure you don't lose too much time on superficial pleasures instead of developing real relationships and career. ...Read more

Sister has brown eyes, other two siblings have blue eyes. What gene is dominent?

Brown over blur: The inheritance of eye color is somewhat complex but when it comes to brown v. blue --- brown is dominant over blue. In your family, Mom and Dad probably have brown eyes but carry one gene for brown and one for blue. There is a 25% chance of a child in this mix with blur eyes. All other combinations will be brown. It is a matter of statistics. ...Read more

Does sitting too close too the desktop screen make people cross eyed ?

Permanently no: Temporarily while you're doing it maybe, but not permanently. We're talking inches from the monitor though. Normal distance, even if its a bit close, will not make you cross eyed, unless you have some sort of eye muscle problem to begin with. ...Read more

Eyes misaligned(left crossed) when focusing, or relaxed. 2 yrs ago Hit frontal bonecorner of wall. There was bleeding, no concussion. Possible link?

Eyes misaligned(left crossed) when focusing, or relaxed. 2 yrs ago Hit frontal bonecorner of wall. There was bleeding, no concussion. Possible link?

Yes can be linked: Head injuries are 1 of the most overlooked causes of ocular misalignments & motility abnormalities. You may have had a concussion without realizing it. Concussion does not require loss of consciousness for the brain to have suffered damage. You should see a doctor for the potential concussion (e.g. neurologist) & a neuro-ophthalmologist for the crossed eye condition. Repair may be possible. ...Read more
